The Norscot Group, Inc. is a promotional marketing company specializing in the development, implementation and administration of fully integrated, globally oriented promotional activities and the design and manufacturing of die-cast scale model replicas.
Norscot obtained exclusive distribution rights for Caterplillar replicas starting in 1998. As other manufacturing agreements have expired, Norscot has become the only source for new Caterpillar models. Many models are direct replacements for those previously made by ERTL.
Norscot pieces are high in detail and craftsmanship but sturdy enough for older children to play with. These are not intended for outdoor use or rough play.
